  1. Hello folks.. Seems like quite a few problems this year within the Online side of things for FM.I play with just the one person from Sweden and i am in Scotland.So i have set a game up with average 30k player sized DB but when my friend tries to log in with the server details he gets frozen and cant seem to proceed any further sometimes not even at all.I host on a wired connection of about 40mbps..so i doubt thats an issue.. But if anyone could help me with these questions that would be great. 1.Do the both of us have to have the same download region set? even if my other network player is in another country as stated above, i.e manchester london etc etc.. 2. Can reducing the "ping" help any? Ive heard that i can,dunno if that is true right enough... 3. Any advice on how to reduce this from happening overall? Hope any of this can be clarified as i feel personally and im sure others playing the game feel the same that this is a massive problem which is spoiling FM17 for us all. Cheers.
  2. I actually forgot to include the next screenshot with my original OP thanks for your input..
  3. Hello guys, Over the past few days and nights!! i have been working on a 4-1-4-1 based formation,whilst i feel that i have it correct at the back my concerns are with midfield and the lone striker role.Now im thinking along the lines of i dont want to push too many players forward in the event of a damaging counter attack although i do feel that my lone striker will need a decent level of support. So on that note my question is to you tactical masterminds out there do i keep the system as it is pictured here...as you can see the forward is on a poacher role which i personally think is suitable,but on the other hand would my midfield not need to be linked to my forward somehow? i.e either a false nine role or a deep-lying forward? thats what im thinking.. Hope someone can shed some light on what they think before i release.. Thanks for reading lads.
  4. Yip i just downloaded from the FMaddicts so its available,looking great in-game - Job well done!!!
  5. Hello guys Im trying to access the fantasy DB file for this on the steam workshop but im havin issues getting it in-game,can anyone advise how to get this up and running? Thanks.
  6. Steamname not found.
  7. FA COMMUNITY SHIELD A hard fought match in the end but unfortunately could not take our chances when they came,Depay scored halfway through the second half to win the match and give United the community shield,lifted by captain Wayne Rooney.
  8. Transfer Dealings so far IN'S Jakob Poulsen - Central Midfielder from FC Midtiylland for 950k,will give us some depth in midfield Evandro - Central midfielder from FC Porto for 750k,statistically looks ok and i think i got him for quite a reasonable fee,hopefully he will battle it out with Andy king for the slot beside Drinkwater Fabio Coentrao - The portugese international signed from Real Madrid for 9.25M and he goes straight in at left back and will battle with Christian Fuchs here OUT'S Ben Chillwell - Season long loan at championship Reading hopefully he can kick on there as he'll be lucky to get a game here at the minute. Other than the above,nothing else in or out as it stands,im still actively needing to get Musa and Okazaki sold to release some more funds.I'll be doing another full update on this area when deadline day comes along.
  9. Pre Season Friendlies So we went on tour to the US and assistant manager Gerry Taggart took charge of team affairs here and also when we got back home,we played some decent teams from the MLS but as you can see results could have been better i think if these matches were played later on in the season,but pre season is only about playing and getting the fitness and match sharpness upto speed.A win,draw and a loss wasnt the best but certainly not the worst ether i guess.It was off over to Romainia now for a match against Tigru Mures resulting in a fought out win,although i think it should have been more given the diffrence in the two teams.Back home for the glamour match against the galacticos Real Madrid who played a first team against us.The final match was against Boavista which wrapped up pre season with a good win. Overall a not too bad pre season but i wonder had it been diffrent if i took charge of the friendlies instead of my asst manager,anyway none the less im fairly happy with what ive seen so hopfully we can kick on with the season. Next up is the Community shield match against Manchester United which should be a smashing match and one im hoping to win to give us some silverware at this early stage.
